Making your own books, notebooks, and binders can be a great hobby. I love to create my own customized binders and journals. However to do so, I needed a good bookbinding press. Unfortunately, they cost at least $100 for a cheap one, and up into the thousands for a high quality press. Of course, being a typical DIYer, I decided to make it myself. If you want to be able to create beautiful books yourself, I can show you how to make a bookbinding press for just pennies on the dollar.
